hi everyone ! need some advice and i apologize in advance for the novel. i got into skiing about 6 yrs ago and didn't want to deal with rentals so i bought my own gear when i got into it. i did the research yrs ago when i purchased them and i think i made the right choices as i purchased online ,but i think im ready for a "critic" on my skis. im pretty much a lone wolf i dont have any friends that are into skiing so im turning to this forum for advice.
i ski the poconos, camelback, blu mtn, eagle rock would like to try some other mtns this yr , and possibly take a trip to vermont. but mainly CB and blu ... so i guess thats your typical eastern ice, man made snow , dont really have anything to compare it to . and i have never skied powder and have no real desire right now to try .
right now i ski mainly green and blue trails. i dont like to push myself to hard as i enjoy skiing more for the relaxing nature of it and not the high speed rush of it but i do take some risk and do have the desire to try black trails in the future
i have never taken a lesson but i ski confidently and without any issues. i can keep both of my skis parallel and straight . i can carve in shorter arches and come to a stop, only time i do the "pizza pie" is when there is traffic , i do a pretty good job for being self taught, past week i went to camel back , and did 13 runs in about 2 hours all over the mtn with no fall downs etc .. dont have anyone to compare that info with or against , but im very happy with my results esp since i did not ski at all 13/14 season
im 6'4'' tall 225lbs
so . with alittle bit of my back ground , here is what i have
K2 apache sabres i think they are a 2009 model specs are 119-72-103 length 174cm 16m radius
from my understanding these are more of an entry level ski. i feel im alittle beyond that point and im wondering if its time to move up to something alittle different or just stick with what i have ? im in no hurry to get something new , but i do like to know if i would be better suited for something else
any advice , suggestions would be great.
